Last week I gave a mid-morning holler on twitter to see if anyone was interested in a spontaneous after-work tweet-up. My week wasn’t going great, and I wanted to surround myself with conversation and good company. At 5:30, twitter friends began trickling into Growler’s Pub on Lindbergh in Sunset Hills, Missouri (a suburb in South County St. Louis).
We’ve had an unusually warm and beautiful fall, so Growler’s substantial outdoor patio was a perfect venue for food and drinks that night. The food was good, but the company was better.
As the St. Louis twitter community has grown, it’s also developed a number of small sub-communities of people, many of whom have become friends offline. This particular tweet-up attracted a group of people who traverse those sub-communities, leaving conversation fresh.
Meeting new people and sharing good conversation was exactly what I needed that night, so thank you to all of my twitter friends who came out to Growler’s for a spontaneous twitter night out.
@tojosan, @nanna_j, @bigjimstl, @angebird, @rockstarima, @mrsbrady & her husband, @cosmosgirl @coreywoodruf, @rayexperience and @karenstl were part of this tweet-up.
